Lip and Cheek Fillers in Merrylands
What are Lip Filler or Cheek Filler?
Lip and Cheek fillers restore or add volume to your Lips and Cheek that have been lost with aging. They don’t stop the aging process, but they might help delay the need for a more invasive surgical lip augmentation, like lip and cheek implants or a lip and cheek lift. They can also help you achieve a desired look, which boosts your self-esteem. Lip and cheek fillers stimulate collagen and imbue water to the site, to create a voluminous youthful appearance.
There are various types of dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and/or around your mouth. However, the most common fillers today are products that contain substances that are similar to hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that helps increase the volume in your lips.
